- Apéritif made in the style of Pommeau de Normandie by Emmanual Camut in Normandy, France
- Made from 100% apples grown in the Pays d’Auge appellation
- Apple must (unfermented apple juice) is boiled overnight to concentrate sugar, sometimes reducing it by more than half; must is then combined with 4-year-old Calvados
- Darker than a regular Pommeau, notes of preserved apple, vanilla and aged balsamic vinegar enticingly introduce a palate of baking spice and custard pastry with pleasant, fresh apple cider tannin on the finish. This apéritif leans towards a dessert wine with an explosion of tarte Tatin flavors. Exceptional.
- 17% ABV; keep refrigerated once opened
Pommeau de Normandie is a name denoting a regulated French category of spirit. Though the Camut family is known for its exceptional Pays d’Auge distillates, their property has never had enough stone in the soil to qualify for Pommeau de Normandie status. Instead, Camut has always released its low-ABV apéritif as an ‘Apéritif Normand’. Now, Emmanual Camut, looking to experiment, has created his own interpretation of the family’s Apéritif Normand, bottled under his own name and available to the US market for the first time.
